Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have opened an investigation into claims that top White House officials, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, pursued a plan to open nuclear power plants in Saudi Arabia, despite potential conflicts of interest and objections from National Security Council officials. Before joining Trump’s White House, Flynn worked for the company behind the nuclear plan. Top advisers warned that the export of nuclear technology could be considered illegal if it could be used as part of a weapons program. The plan could also be in violation of a nuclear nonproliferation act. According to a report by the congressional committee, the White House may still be discussing the plan. We’ll have more on this story with Congressmember Ro Khanna after headlines.
